Maryland Gov. Wes Moore says ‘nothing we will not do’ on recovery efforts after bridge collapse

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore provided an update Thursday evening on recovery efforts in the wake of the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, saying there was a "long road ahead." 

Sharing the podium with Democratic Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, Moore said, "there is nothing that we will not do" to ensure a swift and proper conclusion. 

The Democratic governor thanked the Biden administration for greenlighting his request for $60 million in federal aid to jumpstart recovery efforts. 

Gov. Moore said it was imperative to clear the channel and open vessel traffic to the port because "the health of the Maryland economy and the national economy depends on it."
